Rube Goldberg Challenge

Learn critical thinking, creativity, innovation and problem solving in a non-traditional learning event and have fun at the same time!  Check out this video to see what a unique project this is! Rube Goldberg teams can be formed through your community club; or youth and leaders can form their own group. Youth mentors ninth grade and above can be a part of a team too. If youth or leaders are interested in starting their own team, the staff at Clay County 4-H can help you recruit a team. The Rube Goldberg project includes curriculum to assist leaders in working through the process. Teams that qualify at their county fair get to compete at the Minnesota State Fair. Contact Lisa Kasson-Bauer at or 218-299-5020 for more information.
